Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 up for preorder, shipping date revealed

Weve said a lot about Huawei Mate 9. Its Leica dual-camera is amazing, the battery is fascinating and can last two days with normal usage and the design is slick. But when the device was revealed in Germany back in November, another phone actually caught the eye – Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9.

This is the first partnership between the design company and Huawei and now you can preorder the product of their collaboration for only 1395.

Theres a lot in common between the regular Mate 9 and the designers one. The chipset is an octa-core Kirin 960, the battery is 4000 mAh in both devices and the camera is dual-sensor Leica (12MP RGB + 20 MP Monochrome).

The differences are that the Porsche Design Mate 9 has 6GB RAM and 256 GB internal memory and comes with a 5.5 dual-curved QHD display. The regular handset stretches to 5.9 but only offers 1080p resolution on its flat screen.

A physical button is placed on the front panel with the fingerprint sensor within it rather than on the back.

The device is available for preorder at Porsche Designs website. The site also lists a shipping date – January 31. If you are interested you can follow the link below to reserve your unit.
